    Yeah, pancakes are good, but Mitch's scramble (eggs, green chiles, and cream cheese) is the way to go. Add some sausage or ham if you want. Order it, eat it, be happy.

    Best breakfast in the south bay. If your feeling up to it the expo 72 omelette is the way to go - and always order the pancakes as the side. Long waits ate worth it... (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more
